health care provider stroke education
Health Care Provider Stroke Education:
  • Through all of our programming we reached 1480 health care providers in the 09/10 fiscal year (see Chart #1). This is a considerably lower number than previous years for several reasons:
  • Workshops provided this year focused on skill-development and therefore accommodated fewer numbers e.g. Motivational Interviewing workshop maximum number 30.
  • Fewer Tips and Tools workshops as the LTC was occupied with the implementation of the MDS-RAI.
  • In terms of our stroke rounds videoconference (provincial and regional), it is always difficult to obtain a true estimate as they can also be accessed through live web cast.
consumer education
Consumer education
  • Although our primary goal is health care provider education, we do capture in our database all the consumer education that occurs in SWO through our regional district team.
  • We reached approximately 1198 consumers with general stroke education including Signs and Symptoms of Stroke, what is a stroke, and blood pressure education.

Educational Programs/ResourcesThere are provincial and regional resources available across the continuum of care. Check out:
